I’m a Priceline negotiator! And it really works!
We had a hotel booked in Palm Beach Florida at a rate of $1507 for 8 nights. I was pleased with that rate. After all, it is spring break and spring training time in Florida. But I had just seen that annoying commercial and thought “what the heck – what do I have to loose”! So I entered my arrival and departing dates, city I wanted to stay, the minimum number of stars (3-1/2), and $79 per night, hit the button, and sat back and waited.
About a minute later I get a notice that my offer has been accepted. OMG! I just saved $783 dollars and will be staying at a Courtyard by Marriot.
So I thought – humm let’s see what I can do on a rental car. I already have one reserved with Alamo but let’s just see. So again I plugged in my dates, selected a mid-size car, where I wanted to pick up the car, and $14 per day. Hit the button and PRESTO – accepted, and by Alamo no less! So I called Alamo and cancelled my original reservation and saved another $92.
Wahoo a total savings of $875. Watch out world – I’m a Priceline Negotiator!
